SPIETH’S ONE KEY FOR GREAT PUTTING
Jordan Spieth has one of the best putting strokes in the game, and it’s all based on one key fundamental he learned growing up.
“I think that the most important fundamental in putting is understanding where you’re aligned, understanding where your putter is aligned,” Spieth says.
“If I’m a degree off in my alignment, when I set the putter down and I look at the centre of the hole, and my putter face is pointed at the right centre, right edge, especially on a course like Augusta National where you have to be perfect with your speed and matching the line of speed, I mean, that can miss the hole from five feet. “So I keep checks on my alignment by using an alignment stick (during practice) on the top toe of my putter pointed at the right edge. Then I know my putter is perpendicular to it and know it’s pointed right to the middle of the hole. That’s something that I do that is very helpful for me.”
It could be pretty helpful to you too.
